Your own attorney general who defended you and you praised lavishly says he couldn’t find evidence of election fraud.

Who does he think he is to call the Supreme Court incompetent and weak?  Especially given that 6 of the 9 were appointed by Republicans and 3 appointed by Trump himself.

In Wisconsin, a Trump appointee demolished Trump’s claims, upholding another Trump appointee’s claims.

No one has lost more, so quickly, than Trump.

Sidney Powell’s claims to have a secret “intelligence source” whose affidavit exactly mathes a Trump podcaster, who served less than a year in the Navy two decadess agaon and claims to have 8 degrees, including a Ph.D and a MBA, and M.D.   The North Dakota attorney general is accusing her of running a fake charity and spending the money on McDonalds and QVC.

Jenna Ellis gives an update on Team Trump’s legal fight against election corruption (OANN)

for more we go go live to a key member of the president’s legal team jenna ellis thank you for joining us what’s the latest with the trump campaign and thank you so much and the trump campaign and in particular in pennsylvania where more than 20 pennsylvania state representatives recently backed calls disputing the state’s election results can you give us the latest here yeah so we’re very excited that the pennsylvania legislature led by doug mostriano and others there are almost 30 legislators now that are co-signers of this resolution that will use their article 2 section 1.2 authority to make sure that they don’t go along with an irredeemably corrupted election and so this is exactly why our founders put that provision in article 2 and to follow up on what jack was just reporting it’s really important to note that there are multiple vehicles to make sure that either the supreme court directs the state legislature to fulfill their duty or the or the state legislatures can do that themselves and that’s why it’s so incredibly important that the pennsylvania legislature allowed us that hearing last week and now they are moving forward with this resolution that they are going to not certify those election results and they are going to make sure to name their delegates uh according to the constitutional process to make sure that none of their constituents in pennsylvania are disenfranchised through a corrupt election we’re hopeful that as pennsylvania leads the way then other states including arizona michigan nevada others in georgia will also recognize how corrupt this election was and also take back their delegates to make sure that we the people genuinely get to select and prefer our president and we’re confident that when every legal vote is counted of course donald trump won and this is the constitutional process to remedy that corrupted election right certainly right certainly and earlier this week that it’s on to the supreme court would you still say you’re working toward a path to victory absolutely and again there are multiple vehicles and ways to get to the supreme court that may be through the third circuit that may be through other means and certainly the the emphasis on the state legislatures is incredibly important because they are the entity that is vested with constitutional authority to make sure that the delegates who actually go to the electoral college and that’s the method by which we choose our american president that they do that by a means that is not corrupted and they make sure as the direct representatives for their state and for their people that they do that in a method that’s according to the constitution and don’t just certify a corrupt election result right and speaking of integrity switching to arizona i understand your team has set up a public hearing on election integrity in phoenix for monday can you tell us a little bit more about that and what you were seeking to accomplish yes so this is a few days behind pennsylvania but basically we expect to mirror very similarly what we accomplished in pennsylvania last week by putting forth witnesses and testimony and expert testimony in arizona about what happened to their election and why this is irredeemably compromised in arizona as well and we’re hopeful that after that hearing arizona will also mirror pennsylvania by taking back their delegates and making sure that they don’t certify a corrupt process so it’s really encouraging i think that as president trump has continued to back the election integrity process to make sure that as the president of the united states he protects and preserves our constitutional republic that state legislators are taking notice and they’re uh they’re looking at all of the evidence and the witnesses that we’re bringing forth we’ve really been denied an evidence you’re hearing anywhere in the court process that’s really unfortunate that should never happen in the judicial branch and so we’re taking this directly to legislators who want to hear this who want to hear from witnesses see our evidence and so we’re very excited to put that forward on monday in arizona and the president has been speaking out about this he tweeted just this morning thinking quotes all the brave men and women in state houses who are defending our great constitution could you tell us how the president is holding up throughout this process yeah so i speak with him along with the mayor multiple times a day and you know he is really invested in making sure that not just the outcome of this election is safe and secure and is not corrupted but he understands that this is about the future of america and protecting and preserving our constitutional republic and our process to make sure that we don’t have corrupt elections and so he is committed to doing that on behalf of the american people he’s always been the president of america first to make sure that the constitution is protected and preserved and so he is 100 behind this and i am so proud of this president that president trump is completely behind protecting election integrity and making sure that the people and these corrupt election officials from governors to secretaries of state all the way down to these local election officials that they don’t get away with this and that they are uh that they are put under the spotlight to to be on notice that uh the republicans and president trump led by president trump are not going to allow this because this will impact the future of our country and we have to preserve and protect free and fair elections yeah the president the president has certainly made it clear he is behind a free and fair election now before i let you go is there anything else that you would like to add yeah thank you so much for that that question and i think that there’s just so much misinformation between all of the mainstream media outlets i’m really grateful to oan for actually giving me the opportunity to come on and explain what’s going on explain the constitutional process explain why these state legislators are actually fulfilling their constitutional duty so i would just tell the american people don’t listen uh to the mainstream media don’t listen to these pundits don’t listen to the twitterratty who are out there trying to just pretend that uh you know this is all over they’re giving misinformation or they’re giving you bad advice on the constitution make sure that you pay attention to what team trump is putting out to what the president is saying and make sure that you’re following up on that because there’s so much misinformation out there we have a really great opportunity right now to protect and preserve our u.s constitution and again we’re so grateful to these state legislators for stepping up and understanding their constitutional responsibility all right jenna ellis is a key member of the president’s legal team thank you so much for your time

Trump sounds just like a right-wing talk-radio host

Talk radio has President Trump’s back. “Where does it say in the Constitution that if Washington’s establishment doesn’t like the results of a presidential election, they get to do whatever they want to do to overturn them?” asked the broadcast king, Rush Limbaugh, after the House formalized its impeachment inquiry in October. “They have been trying to get rid of Donald Trump under false, lying premises since election night.” Mark Levin claimed that several of the witnesses testifying in the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment hearings “exposed themselves as part of a cabal.”

To these radio hosts, Trump’s voters are the ones who are really under attack: “He’s a surrogate for their hatred for us,” said Limbaugh. Given this robust defense, it’s not surprising that Trump regularly retweets or quotes hosts like LimbaughLevin and Laura Ingraham.

But there’s more to these apologetics than the fact that right-wing talk radio hosts agree with the president’s views. Trump sounds just like them. Reality TV may have enshrined his celebrity, but Trump’s tone, his concerns and his willingness to shock people are most at home on the radio waves during rush hour.

He calls the House investigation “The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History!” and a “hoax.” He asserts without evidence that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is “a corrupt politician and a criminal” and that Republicans are dealing with “human scum.”

It’s rants like these — which mimic what millions of conservative Americans consume on the airwaves — that have helped Trump build and cement a durable bond with these voters. This relationship might prove to be the president’s political salvation, propelling him not only past impeachment but maybe even to a second term.

When Trump declared his candidacy in 2015, reporters and analysts of all political stripes dismissed him as a sideshow. Not only did he lack political experience, but he kept saying things that politicians just weren’t allowed to say. One astute observer thought otherwise: Limbaugh. He said he and his producer were “laughing ourselves silly” during Trump’s announcement speech, but he also presciently observed: “This is gonna resonate with a lot of people, I guarantee you, and the Drive-Bys” — Limbaugh’s term for mainstream journalists — “are gonna pooh-pooh it. They’re gonna relegate it to the carnival characteristics of the campaign and so forth, but it’s gonna resonate, just like [1992 and 1996 presidential candidate Ross] Perot did.”

How did Limbaugh know that Trump’s message would connect? Maybe because a lot of what the candidate said sounded like his show. The most controversial line in Trump’s campaign announcement speech was his assertion that Mexico was sending the United States “rapists” and others who brought drugs and crime with them. This claim horrified many Americans. But later that summer, after Trump was pushed on the point during the first Republican primary debate, Limbaugh defended himarguing: “You know, they try to dump on Trump, demand proof from him that the Mexican government is knowingly sending rapists, murderers and purse snatchers, and this kind of thing. They are! It’s something I know full well. We’ve had the stories. We’ve done them on this program.” And indeed, he had: For more than a decade, Limbaugh had been railing about “violent criminals” that “countries like Mexico” were “unwilling to take back.” To Limbaugh and his audience, Trump was showing a refreshing willingness to tell uncomfortable truths that Republican politicians shy away from because they are afraid of offending liberal sensibilities or being accused of bigotry.

Stylistically, Trump is far more talk-radio host than buttoned-down politician. For instance, he employs snarky nicknames to rip the mainstream media. While Levin bemoans the “Washington Compost” and “MSLSD,” Trump lashes out at the “Failing New York Times,” “Deface the Nation” and “Very Low Ratings” CNN.

The extreme rhetoric Trump uses, especially on immigration, has long been a staple of talk radio (and other conservative media, like Fox News and Breitbart). During the 2007 debate over bipartisan immigration reform, Limbaugh warned that the Senate bill would “fundamentally, and perhaps permanently, alter American society for the worse.” Fellow talker Michael Savage said then-Senate Republican leader Trent Lott (Miss.) was engaged in “gansterism” after Lott compained about talk-radio hosts.

Seven years later, when Republican House Speaker John Boehner revealed his principles for immigration reform, Limbaugh exploded again. To him, the push to admit immigrants who, he claimed, saw the United States as “no place special” was one more part of the left’s campaign to degrade America. Liberals were teaching young Americans in public schools, he said, “not only not to love the country, but they’re being lied to about how the country was founded, why it was founded, who founded it and what its purpose is.” And now, with immigration reform, Limbaugh fumed, the Republican Party wanted “the end of the country as we know it.” While Ingraham admitted in 2014 that she personally liked Boehner, she, too, declared that what he was doing on immigration was “a nightmare. It is political suicide both for the free market and ultimately for small-government conservatism.”

What enraged hosts and listeners the most was that, instead of going to war to defeat such dangerous ideas, establishment Republicans like Boehner were proposing them and trying to punish the few courageous conservatives who dared to fight back. That’s what happened to Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) in 2015 when he voted against a procedural rule on a trade bill that would have given President Barack Obama authority to negotiate deals faster. Leadership’s attempt to punish Meadows enraged Levin, who called Boehner a “fool” and a “moron” and demanded: “We need a new Republican Party that’s principled, that’s conservative, that believes in America. Not this crap that goes on inside the Beltway.”

Listening to talk radio, it was clear that many of the people in right-wing audiences wanted this sort of fire from politicians, too. But they had concluded that most Republican politicians were too weak or too interested in currying favor in the clubby world of Washington to adequately battle Democrats. Later that summer, after analysts panned Trump’s performance in the first Republican debate, a Limbaugh caller named Chris epitomized this sentiment, explaining that pundits underestimated the anger of Republicans like him toward their party. These voters felt “almost betrayed.” To Chris, instead of two parties arrayed against each other, “like Republican versus Democrat,” it was “almost like two versions of one party, and the other side is the outsiders that aren’t part of it.”

This belief created fertile ground for Trump: His blunt calls to build a border wall, his willingness to sneer at norms dictating what he couldn’t say or do, and his instinct to punch back at critics thrilled conservatives who had been looking for a pugilistic politician who sounded like their favorite warriors on the airwaves.

And far from becoming more presidential after winning office, Trump has continued to shred norms, sticking to the sort of rhetoric more commonly found on talk radio than in the White House — especially on his Twitter feed. A New York Times analysis last month revealed that between Inauguration Day in 2017 and early this November, Trump had attacked someone or something in 5,889 tweets, while 1,710 tweets promoted conspiracy theories, also common on conservative airwaves. The impeachment inquiry has turned the president’s Twitter feed positively molten: He has labeled Schiff “sick and suggested that the chairman be arrested for treason. He has dubbed Democrats a “disgrace” and questioned their sanity. Like the radio hosts, he has called the impeachment investigation “bulls—,” a “coup” intended to take away people’s “freedoms.” He has demanded that lawmakers such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) be impeached (which isn’t constitutionally possible) and even endorsed the theory that his removal might lead to a “Civil War like fracture.”

To Trump’s base, rather than being unpresidential or dangerous, this rhetoric proves he’s a fighter willing to tell inconvenient truths and take on their burden — just as hosts like Limbaugh, Levin and Ingraham have for decades. Listeners believe that their values — such as a belief in traditional nuclear families and gender roles, patriotism, religiosity and economic freedom from government intrusion — which they see as crucial to American greatness, are under attack. And Trump has the power, the megaphone and the willingness to battle back against a cruel and intolerant liberal establishment that increasingly dominates society, no matter the firestorm he creates. As long as he’s doing that, his base isn’t going to let him be destroyed by the forces seeking to cripple the country they love.

Trump Tweets Lengthy Attack on F.B.I. Over Inquiry Into Possible Aid to Russia

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Saturday unleashed an extended assault on the F.B.I. and the special counsel’s investigation, knitting together a comprehensive alternative story in which he had been framed by disgraced “losers” at the bureau’s highest levels.

In a two-hour span starting at 7 a.m., the president made a series of false claims on Twitter about his adversaries and the events surrounding the inquiry. He was responding to a report in The New York Times that, after he fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director in 2017, the bureau began investigating whether the president had acted on behalf of Russia.

In his tweets,

  • the president accused Hillary Clinton, without evidence, of breaking the law by lying to the F.B.I. He claimed that
  • Mr. Comey was corrupt and best friends with the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III.
  • He said Mr. Mueller was employing a team of Democrats — another misleading assertion — bent on taking him down.

Individually, the president’s claims were familiar. But as the special counsel’s inquiry edges ever closer to him, Democrats vow a blizzard of investigations of their own and the government shutdown reaches record lengths, Mr. Trump compiled all the threads of the conspiracy theory he has pushed for many months in an effort to discredit the investigation.

Mr. Trump accused the F.B.I. of opening “for no reason” and “with no proof” an investigation in 2017 into whether he had been working against American interests on behalf of Russia, painting his own actions toward Russia as actually “FAR tougher” than those of his predecessors.

The Times article, published Friday evening, reported that law enforcement officials became so alarmed by Mr. Trump’s behavior surrounding his firing of Mr. Comey that they took the explosive step of opening a counterintelligence investigation against him.

Naming several of the bureau’s now-departed top officials, including Mr. Comey and his deputy, Andrew G. McCabe, Mr. Trump said the F.B.I. had “tried to do a number on your President,” accusing the “losers” of essentially fabricating a case. “Part of the Witch Hunt,” he wrote — referring dismissively to the investigation now being overseen by Mr. Mueller.

At the time he was fired in May 2017, Mr. Comey had been leading the F.B.I.’s investigation into Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election, and the officials believed that his removal, in hindering the inquiry, posed a possible threat to national security. Their decision to open the case was informed, in part, by two instances in which Mr. Trump tied the firing to the Russia investigation.

The inquiry they opened had two aspects, including both the newly disclosed counterintelligence element and a criminal element that has long been publicly known: whether the firing constituted obstruction of justice.

When Mr. Mueller was appointed days later, he took over the joint inquiry as part of his larger investigation of Russia’s action in 2016 and whether anyone on the Trump campaign conspired with Moscow. It is not clear whether he is still pursuing the counterintelligence matter, and no public evidence has emerged that Mr. Trump himself secretly conspired with the Russian government or took directions from it.

Mr. Trump indicated on Saturday that he had not known of the existence of the counterintelligence investigation before the Times article, and he did not dispute the newspaper’s reporting.

But he made clear that he viewed any such inquiry as illegitimate from the start. He presented it, without evidence, as part of a vast, yearslong conspiracy to undo his presidency.

In the tweets, Mr. Trump defended his decision to fire Mr. Comey — “a total sleaze!” — at length, accusing the former director of overseeing a “rigged & botched” investigation of Mrs. Clinton, and leading the agency into “complete turmoil.” Democrats and Republicans alike wanted Mr. Comey removed, he said.

“My firing of James Comey was a great day for America,” Mr. Trump wrote. “He was a Crooked Cop.”
